Uses for Stocking Tops and Pantyhose
Cut off the elastic tops of your tights and stockings before throwing them away. I use the stocking tops for hair bands and scrunchies. I use the elastic from the waistband of tights to secure my rubbish bag around the bin and also to keep the cat litter bag in place.
Upcycled Letter Rack for Eyeglasses
I up-cycled my letter rack to keep my eyeglasses on. I think the rack cost me £2.99 on eBay. By the window, I have two wooden panels and I decided to place it here. I just needed one nail to hang it by but the bottom half wasn't stable enough so I used a marble-sized piece of white Sugru to keep it in place.
Cleaning a Very Burnt Saucepan
I took a telephone call and completely forgot my saucepan boiling my Udon noodles. I didn't think anything would shift the burnt-on food. How wrong I was.
Orange Peels To Ward Off Ants
Ant killer: Save your orange peels! Mix up equal parts of peels and water in a blender, pour over the ants nest or transfer to a pump-spray bottle to mark a line around your property.
Snack Bowl from Bag
Pierce the middle of the packet of crisps and tear a nice large round hole, making your crisp/chip bag into a ready-made bowl. Leave out your bags like this and you save using crockery that needs washing up.
Cupcake Liner as a Drinks Cover

Put Eyeshadow in the Freezer
They say to change your eye shadow every six months. I have some favourites I have had for years! Pop your shadows in a sealed bag and pop in the freezer overnight. This will kill off any bacteria and they will be as good as new.
Nifty Storage Idea for Scarves and Belts
You will need an ordinary clothes hanger plus some shower curtain rings. Lots of space-saving room to hang your scarves and belts.
Lemon Juice Ice Pack
I re-purposed an empty Jif Lemon juice container for a handy ice-pack. I suffered for a long time with nose bleeds due to a perforation and I found the shape of the Jif bottle was ergonomically shaped to keep the bridge of my nose cold thus stopping the bleeding.
